Description

This update fixes a security bug in the FGLogger subsystem, to prevent it from overwriting arbitrary files the user has write access to (CVE-2017-13709)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
